Ticket to Ride: Ghost Train

In this Halloween Edition of the classic Ticket to Ride First Journey, parents and kids alike travel a spooky neighbourhood from one strange house to another. “Knock, knock… Trick or treat!” There’s nothing scary about this ghost. So don’t be afraid. This is the perfect introduction to Ticket to Ride for younger players. Treat yourself! Based on the award-winning board game Ticket to Ride.

Roller Ghoster

It’s time for the annual ghost race in Roller Ghoster, with players racing to climb to the top of the ruined mansion first! But, beware; the guests inside the house will roll objects at you and the other players. From Schmidt’s Drei Magier line, Roller Ghoster teaches children risk management by using a mechanic similar to Fireball Island. Players can choose the inside track as they race to the top, which is longer but much safer from flying objects. Or, players choose the outside track which is a faster path to the top – but a much heavier risk of being hit by a flying object and returning them to the start.

Splendor Duel is a brand new 2-player game with unique and innovative mechanics, designed by Marc André and Bruno Cathala. Will you be the one to wear the crown?
Confront your rival guild in a race for victory. Take Gems and Pearl from the common board, and gain royal favours and prestige! Players will recognize some of the Splendor
key aspects: the Renaissance jewels theme, high-quality components, and card and token acquisition mechanics, increasing one’s prestige and purchase opportunities.
However, Splendor Duel relies on entirely new rules and offers unique game contents: a common board, Privilege figurines, and Royal Favor cards. Moreover, even if the
famous tokens still depict gems, they are in a compact format and are rejoined by pearls, a new resource. And last but not least, the cards have multiple characteristics and varied abilities that will trigger additional rounds, bonus tokens, etc., to reach one of the three victory conditions.
